Have you ever wondered why the Democrat Establishment would rather work against Bernie Sanders than with him? Bernie’s policies are what these other Leftists have been talking about for decades. Why wouldn’t they combine the grassroots support of Bernie with the billions of dollars held by the elites? The answer is simple: Bernie really means it. That set off alarm bells with those who push similar policies just to attract votes against Republicans. Bernie really will go after billionaires and Wall Street, which happens to be where many liberals get their wealth.
However, the Bernie Sanders’ of the world are on the rise because Donald Trump proved that the power of the billionaire class has been broken by a return to the grassroots. That’s true for Democrats as well as Republicans. Tom Steyer spent over $250 million of his own fortune on his campaign and didn’t win a single delegate. Bernie raised $34.5 million in the fourth quarter last year, with an average donation of only $18.53. The have-nots fueled his candidacy, and the Democrat Establishment is running scared from them.
The scariest part of the whole thing is that Bernie can create a grassroots army under the banner of these radically leftist policies. The rising tide of socialism is something no conservative can afford to ignore.
Bernie is paving the way for others to challenge the fundamental American institutions we all hold dear. The Electoral College is under attack. The free market system is one of Sanders’ biggest targets. The Second Amendment will be more at risk than ever before. The sanctity of human life will be challenged by those who hold nothing sacred. This is what is at stake if we ignore grassroots socialism.
Now is not the time to stick our heads in the sand. We must educate ourselves on the issues and prepare to engage a new generation in a way they can understand. The fight against socialism may be confined to the Democratic Party for now, but it’s only a matter of time before they take over their party and come after conservatives. Let’s take action before this happens.
